Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) Structure under Compression Load Conditions: ABAQUS/SIMULIA

Introduction The RCC structure displayed below is subjected to displacement under static conditions in ABAQUS GUI. The basic purpose of using RCC is to absorb stresses (specifically tensile stresses) that arise in the structure. From a structural engineering point of view, concrete is weak in tension, and therefore it is reinforced accordingly with suitable material. To overcome the crack development due to variation in temperature and stresses (shrinkage) also, reinforcement is used. RCC also...
